STC-1000/ITC-1000 – The STC-1000 was (and probably still is) a great controller, arguably the best value in temperature controllers, especially if you’re on the handy side. The ITC-1000 is what I would call and upgrade to the STC-1000. The big upgrade is that the ITC-1000 display ins deg F and deg C, where most versions of the STC-1000 were deg C display only. Beyond there, it’s my understanding that there are some usability improvements in the ITC-1000.
The American Homebrewers Association has a great write up on a step by step build out of an STC-1000/ITC-1000 Temperature Controller Build. It includes a parts list, pictures and diagrams along with a step by step how to for getting this going.
